Womble Carlyle attorney Morris Ellison believes the Southeast is primed to take a leading role as an international transportation innovation center. On March 16th, Ellison will discuss this topic at the 8th Annual AmCham Germany Business Day in Atlanta. The theme of the event is the “USA-Germany-Israel Innovation Triangle.”
In addition to Ellison, Womble Carlyle attorneys Jamie Francis and Michael Sullivan are presenting the firm at AmCham Germany Business Day.
